Comprehension's the Name of the Game.
Jones, Jack B.
Many writers have suggested that comprehension occurs at several levels (e.g., literal, inference, and conclusion). However, many teachers spend as much as two-thirds of their time on lower-level skills such as phonics and literal-level comprehension skills. Some authors have suggested ways of assisting readers in achieving comprehension at more than one level by such techniques as surveying and paragraph analysis. Several prominent educators have devised models of learning and thought, which have been translated into usable taxonomies for developing comprehension skills. (A chart is included that presents six of these models along with examples of how each is employed.) (TJ)
